Just 5 miles outside of Crieff, we are well placed for visits to the town which features a range of attractions, including the Drovers’ Exhibition, the Caithness Glass factory (where you can see paper-weights being made and paint your own) and Drummond Castle Gardens. The Ceramic Experience gives you the opportunity to paint your own pottery and there’s even a community fishery nearby. A trip to Crieff and Strathearn Country Market will introduce you to local crafts and produce, as well as cooking demonstrations which produce yummy tasters for you to try.
Our location also gives us easy access to the majority of Perthshire which boasts many shops and leisure activities and its wonderful scenery is very popular with walkers. In fact, one of General Wade’s roads passes right behind the inn; we have maps available to help you plan your route.
Perthshire is also popular for the Scotch Whisky Trail which takes you to both the smallest and the oldest distilleries in Scotland. If you are more of a thrill seeker, Scottish Quads are based nearby, offering quad biking courses to suit all ages and skill levels – just remember to wear your old clothes! Shooting and stalking are also popular activities, as is angling which is widely available throughout the county.
If you fancy a trip a little further afield, Oban, Fort William, Inverness, Edinburgh, Glasgow, The Trossachs and the Kingdom of Fife are all within reach, each abounding with history, wildlife and sport.
Purchasing a Perthshire Highland Golf Ticket is very good value if you are planning to the play the area’s nine-hole courses. The nearest 18-hole courses are located in Crieff, Pitlochry, Dunblane, Dunkeld and Auchterarder. There are of course many other courses in Perthshire, Angus and Fife including Gleneagles and St Andrews.
We have our own par three nine hole course here at Foulford South Wing which is free to residents of our accommodation. Golfers of all abilities will appreciate the stunning scenery of this unique and well-maintained course.
